Thanks for great review. I have some questions.

1- What is the difference between Duttys Leo "HG" rom and normal multi-lange rom?
2- Can i change this theme? Is this possible? Colorful is cool, right, but i don't want it.


By triniboi March 20, 2010 04:28 PM

Nice review and yet another great rom for Dutty. I prefer the task-bar without the color icons though but I guess after flashing it can be changed by installing a cab.

GREAT rom. however, I still find battery drain is quite faster than with Dutty M-language v2.3

Has anyone tried other radios for this?


By duttythroy March 28, 2010 12:44 PM

Which Radio version u use, I know this might be a long shot but I treid the 2.06 radio and its magnificent here for me also in U.K


By russ2d2 March 26, 2010 09:41 PM

I'm having the same problem as football_fan - touchscreen buttons won't work during a call. Looks like I'm going to have to flash another ROM, unless someone has a solution?


By football_fan April 06, 2010 07:05 AM

incase ur still having the problem.. simple solution is to tweak ur settings on BsB tweaks or any other app ur using, with regards to screen sensitivity. worked for me.
